How much i delegate depends on what is happening on a shift, pt stable, resonable pt load, ill do RN and assistant work excepts pt requiring 2 person assits. More pt and/or less stable i will delgate tasks to ensure pt needs are met, I will still fecth drinks, toilet pt etc as i can. however they are some jobs i can only do that take time so i need to free myself to achoeve these.
zippy gbr i agree there are loads of moaning on my ward if personal cares fall more on hca and nurses are seen as lazy. some hca will even leave pt(washes) if they have feel they have done too much, they won't pair up to help each other.
Funny RN can do anything a hca/cna can do i would love to primary nurses withouth hca/cna but i can't.
I tell pt at times i'm not able to fetch somthing at that time but i will as soon as i can, they dont always understand but hey that people.
